Set Your Table With Flair--A Simple Setting For International Tea Day

Hello, dear Friends!!

Won't you join me in the beauty of the outdoors for a sweet setting?

A table laden with uncomplicated pretties.

A trio of preserved boxwoods becomes the centerpiece, adding a bit of verdant charm.

Each setting is adorned with pretty antique linen napkins utilized as placemats, and aromatic sprigs of jasmine clipped fresh from my garden.

A ceramic place card to designate seating

is joined by a coordinating menu board.  It is a handy tool to inform guests of yummy treats to come!

Is there anything more complimentary to tea than fresh, homemade baked goodness served here in an adorable ceramic basket,

along with a wonderful selection of jams and jellies??  Some of my favorites are orange marmalade, lemon curd, and lingonberry.  What are yours?

It is still spring and I cannot think of a more lovely pattern indicative of the season than Bernardaud's Artois Vert.  The tea and creamer sit so lovely on my table...showcasing the ladylike floral detail.  

I love the daintiness of the flowers and the subtle gold gild.  Closeup.

Don't those leaves practically dance merrily 'round the teacup?  So sweet!

Happy International Tea Day!!
